New Graphics Card for Datacentres
AMD is announcing a new Radeon video card called the Radeon Pro V340. This one is not for gaming however, but is a high-performance dual-GPU Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution. It is purpose built to power demanding datacentre visualization workloads such as CAD, rendering, and design.
The card itself takes up two slots and the dual Radeon Vega 56 GPUs have passive cooling. It utilizes vapour chambers for more efficient transfer, handling the 300W TDP. This GPU has 7168 Stream Processors in 112 CUs based on the 14nm FinFET architecture. It also packs 32GB of HBM2 memory, with up to 512GB/s memory bandwidth across a 4096-bit memory interface.
Each card supports up to 32 1GB virtual machines. This is up to 33 percent more than the nearest competitive solution. It also has the ability to compress independent video streams in both H.264 and H.265 formats. The security minded also need not worry since it comes with a built-in security processor. This provides secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities.
